NBA Best Bets: Tuesday, February 7

There’s nothing like some NBA basketball during Super Bowl week.

Is anyone paying attention?

Probably not. But we’re winning at an insane rate in 2023, so let’s keep it going!

Layups: 2-Unit Plays

Nuggets 1H -5 vs. Timberwolves (-110): As far as revenge games go, this is about as textbook as it’ll get. Denver played at Minnesota just two days ago and got killed without Nikola Jokic and Aaron Gordon. Tonight, both are healthy and the Nuggets have the BEST win percentage in the NBA after a loss with a 12-4 record. On top of that, the Nuggets are 6-4 ATS in the first half at home in their last 10 games. The numbers love Denver in this spot, and I love numbers, so let’s ride with the Mile High team to get it done in the first half tonight.


Bulls 1H +4.5 @ Grizzlies (-105): Don’t look now, folks, but the Bulls have won three games in a row! I don’t know what’s happening with them — if they’re back or not — but what I DO know is they’ve been first-half assassins. The Bulls are a staggering 9-1 in the first half ATS on the road in their last ten. As for the Grizz, they have a pedestrian defensive rating in the first half over their last ten games with a net rating of -9. Will the Bulls win this game? I have no clue. But I do know they’ll compete for at least a half.
